 About the project

The center hole of the strop is placed over the square head of the foremast and the two thimbles are passed through openings in the decking of the top.  Ropes, called shrouds, that are attached to the sides of the hull will fasten to these thimbles and support the foremast, preventing it from moving side to side.
